How to Dress Like an A-List Actor with Celebrity Stylist Ilaria Urbinati

Ilaria Urbinati is feeling a real ’70s vibe right now. “I love the exaggerated proportions—higher-waist trousers, wide notch lapels and printed shirts,” says the stylist, citing an article which calls this craze “the ’70s Sleaze.” Considering how well Urbinati dresses famous gents, we’re keen to trust her judgement. 

The most in-demand celebrity stylist for men, Urbinati has major styling prowess that reflects in her clientele list—a starry roster that includes Tom Hiddleston, Rami Malek, Armie Hammer and Riz Ahmed. “I take a lot of pride in the fact that each of my clients have their own look as opposed to my look,” says the stylist, who encourages men to take more risks on the red carpet. Recall Donald Glover’s velvet Gucci ensemble at the 2017 Golden Globes, where he accepted an award for Best Actor in Atlanta while simultaneously nabbing the night’s “Best Dressed” title. As one of her favorite red carpet looks ever, the latter was Urbinati’s win, too.

The Wrinkle-Free Travel Suit We Made Just for You

Whether traveling across town, from coast to coast or to another country, the eternal question for the commuter is, “How do I arrive at my destination looking crisp and polished?” Our designers were tasked with reinventing the classic suit for the man on the move, taking their cues from the small army of Nordstrom employees who routinely fly to L.A. and New York, even Europe and Asia. (It goes without saying that you can’t show up to Pitti Uomo looking like a slob.)

The result is a next-generation travel suit that’s lightweight, wrinkle-resistant, breathable and, yes, stylish. Lead designer Ryan Guinn took a few minutes away from the European leg of Men’s Fashion Week to talk us through the highlights and features of his favorite new suit.

Suit Yourself: Wearing an Off-the-Rack Suit for an Occasion (Like a Wedding or Prom)

Topman suits for weddings and proms
Prom and wedding season happen in proximity to each other on the calendar, but—hopefully—they occur at very different periods in a man’s life. Even so, there are a couple of things these occasions share:

  1. There will be dancing.
  2. You should try to look your best.
  3. You should probably wear a suit.

Whether this is the first time you’ll be suiting up or if you’re looking to update your usual wedding attire, here are a couple of styling and fit pointers to make off-the-rack suits look off the hook.

Suiting rules and styles are constantly evolving—thankfully, or we’d all be wearing knee breeches and tails. Even if you’re not in the market for a new suit, you might make an honest assessment of your suiting staples to see if they abide by these guidelines.
